Get down argos (www.argos.co.uk)

They've got loads of.

You can probably get one cheaper elsewhere, but at least argos usually have stuff in stock.

Yeah i know, but it needs to be a high Quality one, as it needs to be able to get Digital Free-2-Air channels...

The one my house mate had was just a standard ariel going throught a booster...

going to go look at argos after work 2day

Hmm - thought you needed a tri-band ariel to pick up all of the free to air channels .... let me know how you get on though, cos I would like this sort of thing for the TV in my bedroom.

Any decent ariel will pick up the free-to-air channels, you just gotta get a strong signal!

Ahh - it may just be that tri-band ariels are just better ariels overall .... and so you get a better signal anyway and more free-to-air channels ?!?!

Yeah this is true, I think it depends on the geographical area you're in as much as anything. Certain parts of the country just don't have the same coverage as others, no matter what aerial you buy.
